(August 5, 2009) Robert Creamer is a convicted felon and the husband of Congressman Jan Schakowsky. Robert and Jan live in Evanston, a nice suburb immediately north of Chicago on the shores of Lake Michigan.
Creamer has a column at The Huffington Post, and his August 3 post is all about supporting Barack Obama's government run health care. There are so many darkly amusing aspects to this that it's hard to know where to begin.
Not surprisingly, there is no mention of Creamer's federal fraud convictions in his bio at Huffington Post. It is noted there, however, that "Arianna Huffington calls his recent book, Stand Up Straight: How Progressives Can Win, a masters class in electoral politics."
Arianna makes no mention of the use of lies, deception and criminal fraud as tactics in Creamer's electoral politics. Creamer accuses opponents of Obama's health care offensive of using mob tactics, and he unwittingly exposes himself as a cheap propagandist. He wrote the following: "So, like the local mob boss, they will be pulling out all the stops in August to terrorize members of Congress and sow fear and confusion about the Obama Health Insurance Reform plan.
